It looks like Rihanna’s mean girl ways have caught up with Teyana Taylor and now the G.O.O.D Music songstress is out on a shoe deal.
According to reports, Adidas dropped the 22-year-old’s endorsement deal due to her public Twitter beef with Rihanna. (You may remember RiRi mad fun of Tey’s “Rapture of Love” IG post, and in response Tey warned the Roc nation singer to not “let twitter get you F-CKED UP!!!”)
The sports brand confirmed the departure in a statement. “We have ended our relationship with Teyana Taylor and do not have any upcoming product launches with her,” Adidas’ senior PR manager wrote in an email.
When asked if the decision was based on her attraction with Rihanna, the company said “we don’t condone violence of any kind.”
“All I can say is that adidas partners with athletes and artists who blend well with our brand values. We evaluate our relationships with partners based on the values we hold at adidas and we don’t condone violence of any kind,” they stated.
Teyana’s publicist initially denied the news, saying she “has not been dropped, the [her new] sneaker is on hold.” But, now we know the full truth.
